Hello AIP Community!
I’m not one to reinvent the wheel, here’s our post about Celiac Disease from our Instagram account. 🙂
- aipcommunityAI Awareness Monday- let’s talk Celiac Disease. For years and years I was told that unless I Tested positive for Celiacs, it was ok to eat gluten. I guess some doctors think feeling like 💩 for 1-3 months after ingesting gluten is ok? So now NCGS and NCWS are named and recognized, and I still get flack from people that just don’t get it. When I go to restaurants or even get a massage or pedicure I make sure the food is gluten free, the lotions and oils don’t have gluten from Vitamin E in them (I generally bring my lotions with me). When asked if I’m allergic I respond YES because being sick for at least a month is not worth the risk. What does being “glutened” mean to me? Severe inflammation, crippling back pain, IBS, up to 5#s of bloat just in the abdomen, puffy eyes, headaches, insomnia – just to name a few. So my heart goes out to those of you batting Celiacs. I’m sure AIP is a great source of relief for you. #celiacs#celiacsdisease #glutenintolerant#wheatintolerant #aiplife #aipcommunity#aipliving #everydayisagoodday#glutensucksanyways #nobandaids#youknowyourbody #guthealth#organiceverything #listentoyourbody#detoxifyyourlife #naturopathicmedicine
Here’s our post from IG. Each week we highlight one of 100 Autoimmune diseases. Today I stepped back for a moment and made some observations – so obvious in retrospect, but things come to us at certain times, so we take it as it comes – here’s what I wrote:
There are 100 autoimmune diseases and of all the ones I’ve been researching there is one common thread – inflammation. And if there’s one thing I can share with you from my own experience and countless other people I’ve helped with the Autoimmune Protocol, cutting out the foods and toxins that cause inflammation gives you your health back. Is it difficult cutting out all the foods you’ve spent your life eating? Absolutely. Is it easy living day in and day out feeling like sh*t? Absolutely not. So take that leap of faith and dedicate the next 90+ days going 💯 AIP. There are no cheat days because that’s only cheating your health and halting progress. Kat and I are here for You. We love this, we heal from this and there’s no reason why you won’t heal too. Community and support makes all things possible. We’re so thank you that You are a part of our AIP Community ❤️ #lupus #aipcommunity #aipworkouts#AIPworks #aipforhealth #glutenfree #inflammation #starttoday #bewell#wearehereforyou
